Communications Supervisor Wins 'Supervisor Of The Year'

July 15, 2010

Mesa Police Communications Supervisor, Laurie Russo, has been selected as the Supervisor of the Year by the Arizona Chapter of the Association of Public Safety and National Emergency Number Association (APCO-NENA). Every year, communications personnel from around the state are nominated by their agencies based on their performance and leadership skills. Laurie has proven time and again that she is a top level supervisor and able to assist in every aspect of running the dispatch center. When needed, she will jump into action on the phones or radios to ensure the safety of our community is never left unattended. From the nominations, APCO-NENA selects one person to receive its highest honor. We are very pleased that Laurie is this year's recipient.

Laurie has been with the Mesa Police Department for 11 years. Prior to Mesa, she began her public safety career as a dispatcher in the Chicago area when she was 19 years old. For Laurie, public safety communication has certainly become a way of life.The Mesa Police Department and the City of Mesa are very lucky to have Laurie in the communications center ensuring that things run smoothly when the community calls for public safety service. Congratulations to Laurie!
